PSEO Textbook Information


PSEO- Obtaining course materials at the start of a semester

The PSEO program pays for all required textbooks, which you will be renting from South Central College. As a PSEO student you will need to create a bookstore account and place an online order through our website. You will find PSEO ordering instructions under the textbooks tab on this website. When you get the payment screen, you will select the “Stud Acct/PSEO/Other” option from the dropdown menu and enter your SCC student ID number when asked for account number. PSEO students MUST put "PSEO Student" in the order comment box so bookstore staff can verify your PSEO status. You will not be charged for your textbooks, but will still need to complete the ordering process for the order to be placed. You can find step by step instructions to place your order under the textbooks tab.   The PSEO Program does not pay for materials listed as optional or recommended.  If you wish to order these items, you will be required to purchase them yourself.


PSEO- Returning course materials

PSEO students are required to return all materials in the same condition they were received in at the end of each semester.  Minimal highlighting and marking on pages is acceptable.  The SCC Textbook Center will inspect all materials after they have been returned to make sure these materials are in good condition.  We are not able to accept books back that have water damage, bite marks, ripped, torn, or missing covers/pages, or are soiled in any way.  If upon inspection, the Textbook Center staff deem the book unreturnable, the student will have a charge placed on their South Central College student account for the USED price of the item.  This charge must be paid prior to registering for future semesters, or for transcripts to be released.  Items not returned by the Friday of the last week of the term (South Central College finals week) will also result in a charge for the USED price of each item placed on the student's account.


If you drop a course prior to the end of the semester, you will be required to return ALL materials for that course within five business days.  Items not returned within five days will be charged to the student at the used price.  


Items we do NOT require back at the end of the semester from our PSEO students:

**If you are a PSEO student who ordered one of these items and did not use it, it needs to be returned. 

  • Used stand-alone access codes (Ex. Cengage Unlimited, Revel, Hawkes Math Codes, ect.)
  • Used Supply kits
  • Used Art kits
  • Used Lab & lecture packets
  • Used Instructor made packets

**PSEO Culinary Arts students will be required to return all books and supplies at the end of the term.


As a reminder from the PSEO Student Policy, Contract & Release form:

I understand that course materials (such as textbooks) required for my class(es) are RENTED and must be returned by the last day of the semester. If I drop or withdraw from my class(es) during the semester, I will return any rented materials within five business days of the drop/withdrawal date. I understand that I will be charged for any rented course materials that are not returned within these timeframes.

Additionally, I understand that I am responsible for returning my materials in the same condition I received them. Minimal highlighting and writing are acceptable. All materials will be inspected in the bookstore upon return for water damage, excessive soiling, torn or ripped covers and pages, bite marks, or other damage that would reduce the value of the book. Upon inspection, students who return items the SCC Textbook Center deem damaged will be charged the used price for each item.
